Video has surfaced online showing the moment police were called in to break up an all-night bender involving players from Australia's and England's Ashes squads.

Three victorious Aussie stars plus two members of England's beaten Ashes squad were reportedly kicked out of a Hobart establishment in the early hours of the morning, after what appeared to be an all-night drinking session after the fifth and final Ashes Test came to an end.

England captain Joe Root and veteran quick James Anderson could be seen in the video alongside Aussies Nathan Lyon, Alex Carey and Travis Head.

The group was sitting at an outdoor setting at the venue with beer bottles scattered on the tables in front of them.

Lyon and Carey were still in their cricket whites after completing a 4-0 Ashes series rout, suggesting they had been up all night after the fifth Test ended.

Footage shows a number of police officers gesturing for the players to stop drinking and clear off after reportedly receiving noise complaints.

One police officer can be heard saying: “Too loud. You have obviously been asked to pack up, so we’ve been asked to come.

“Time for bed. Thank you.

“They just want to pack up.”

Cricket Australia said it was aware of the incident, with Tasmania Police confirming that the players left without incident when told to do so.

“Tasmania Police attended the Crowne Plaza Hobart on Monday morning after reports were made of intoxicated people in a function area," they said.

“The guests were spoken to by police just after 6:00am and left the area when asked.

“No further action will be taken by police.”

Aussies want to be World No.1 Test side

Following their dominant Ashes series win, the Aussies hope it will be the start of "something big" as they aim to become the best Test side in the world.

Pat Cummins enjoyed a dream start to his captaincy career, securing a 4-0 series victory over England late on day three in Hobart.

Cummins' men will now turn their attention to a white-ball series against New Zealand later this month.

Test tours of Pakistan and Sri Lanka then await, with Cummins determined to ensure his side secure a spot in the 2023 world Test championship final.

"To be the best side in the world you have to win at home but, almost more importantly, you need to be successful overseas," Cummins said in Hobart.

"We haven't played a whole lot overseas in the last couple of years. Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India next year, England - it's all really foreign conditions.

"That will be our challenge. I feel we are really well suited with a squad of 15 plus extras, who aren't here and can offer a lot in those conditions.

"This is hopefully the beginning. I feel we're all in a really good place.

"There's no imminent retirees, so hopefully we're building something big the next few years."
